I made an exciting discovery this afternoon and had to tell you about it immediately.
First of all, even though it’s January 24th, I have not finished looking at/reading the
book. Because————I don’t want it to end! So I’ve been taking my time and today
I opened to page 167, where I left off last time, and looked at the photo on page 167—
SECOND OF ALL, for some reason today all the photos are going to be giant sized and
the usual adjustment doesn’t work—so no need to enlarge the photos today—that will
save you time!
So, on page 167 was this great button:
and the description——–
Ha ha! I forgot to tell you the book is in French!! Anyway, it says the button is made of
mother of pearl, with a fish hook on top and covered with a plastic covering, rimmed in
metal. AND it says it was made by designer François Hugo for Elsa Schiaparelli—nice!
Now for the icing on the cake——-I think I have two of them! Could it be?? What do
you think? Mine also are mother of pearl—have quite a similar fish hook–the metal rim
has a bit of age—1950-ish? Could it be? What fun!
And I know you want to see the back!
Have you started your own button collection yet?
